A Message From the Tax Collector's Office:
Taxes are due: February
1st, May 1st, August 1st and November 1st. There
is a 10-day grace period for receipt of quarterly property tax payments. If payment is received after the grace period has
interest will accrue at a rate of 8% per annum on
the first $1,500.00 and 18% on amounts in excess of $1,500.00 from due date to date of payment received by Collector. A
penalty of 6% will be charged on any tax delinquency exceeding $10,000.00 if not paid by the end of the calendar year.
As of June 7, 2021 the Borough Hall 2nd floor lobby re-opened to the public by
appointment. Please note the Borough no longer accepts cash payments for amounts due greater than $5.00. In addition to the
online payment option (see link above), you may remit payment by check via US mail, via the Tax Collector’s dropbox
(located in the main lobby to the right of the elevator, below the directory board), or through online bill payment from your
bank. Please be aware that payments initiated by your bank should be scheduled in advance to allow sufficient time for processing
and mailing. Payments are credited to your account as of the date received by the Borough. If you are mailing a check and prefer a receipted bill, please
include the entire bill and a stamped self-addressed envelope with your payment.
